Music Monday--Rejoice Greatly!

Today's Music Monday is from Handel's Messiah. Rejoice Greatly O Daughter of Zion was one of the readings at yesterday's Mass. It was Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete is Latin for rejoice and the Mass readings point us to the ever nearing birth of our Savior. Rejoice!

We had a LP of Handel's Messiah growing up. I can still hear the scratches in the background (in my head of course) as I listen to this version. Remember when you could sing that high?

Yes. *Sigh* My days of singing beautifully without effort are over, I'm afraid.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
